Staying Fit at the Conference
Changing time zones, networking, educational sessions, dinner groups…let’s face it—travel to the Annual Meeting could leave you with little opportunity for fitness. And while you may be tempted to “forget” your gym clothes altogether, consider this: staying active can give you the energy and stamina you need to help you through those full days in Washington, DC! We have fitness activities planned for each day of the conference!
In fact, recent studies suggest that business travelers who exercise while they travel can improve reaction and alertness by up to 61%. Moreover, exercise boosts immunity defenses, triggers the release of brain endorphins, and even helps you sleep better. Check out our fitness options for you!

Members will be meeting on the terrace level entrance at 5:30 pm on Monday, walk to the zoo and enjoy a 1 hour power walk, leaving the zoo at 7 pm, returning back to the hotel at 7:30 pm. NCURA staff will meet you at the terrace level entrance to see you off with maps of the zoo to guide your Powerwalk once you get there! The Hilton is at 1919 Connecticut Avenue and the Zoo is at 3001 Connecticut Avenue, NW so it is a straight shot up Connecticut Avenue.
